Women’s golf clothing is not my forte. 

So that is why I’m leaving this to Kat from, who is not only a Yoga Instructor, Nutritionist, and Wellness Blogger, but a keen golfer as well!  Although if that is a picture of Kat on the range, I would suggest she do something about that hip sway and shoulder turn to improve her backswing position. (now that is something I do know about!)  Anyway, Kat has some great tips for women to not only be comfortable but stylish as well!  Check it out.

Summer is in the air and golf season is upon us! As a female golfer, I have struggled for years to find “cute” golf outfits.

I feel like so many golf clothes for women are either geared toward older players OR whatever man person designed them has no idea how to cut a shirt that isn’t boxy and short (ahem, Adidas.).

That’s me last summer trying on every size small of every brand Golfsmith had. Everything was either too short on my torso and uber boxy, or see-through like this white number. Get it together! (also these shorts are not golf aprop – see my guidelines below).

Luckily, there seem to be new options popping up up everywhere offering much better options for women. (Did anyone see the Lululemon email yesterday?? FINALLY!).

I’ve pulled together some of my faves I’m crushing on this season as well as some guidelines for what to look for so you can be comfortable on the course AND comply with club dress-codes in style.

Keys to Finding the Right Golf Outfit

Here are some things to consider when shopping for golf clothes:

1. Breathability.

Look for clothes (shirts especially) that are made of a breathable or moisture wicking fabric, just like you would with workout clothes. One of my friends recently took up golf and told me she was going to hit up Banana Republic for some new clothes – NO. Golf is a sport, and although you may not be getting a cardio workout, if you are walking the course or standing in the sun, you are going to want something that allows your skin to breathe. Nike and Slazenger both have shirts with fabrics that are more waffle in texture that I prefer.

2. Fit.

This is a golf course ladies, not the gym – so your super tight low-cut workout tops are not going to cut it at the club. Look for shirts that are looser fit and have sleeves (no tank tops). If you are worried about tan lines or being too hot, look for sleeveless collared styles like the ones shown above.

Courses have dress codes – check before you play. Many are kind of outdated and ask for shorts that hit the knee (no thanks) but most are ok if you show up in reasonably fit shorts (no shorter than 5″ inseam) or a skirt that hits mid thigh. If you can see your butt cheeks when you bend over, your shorts are too short.

3. Length.

I tend to lean towards skirts on warm days and capris on cool days to comply. I get Lulu running skirts in a Tall so they are a little longer and I’ve never had a problem.
